Save Wigan A&E

We the undersigned note the consistently good performance of Wigan’s A&E and the strong public support for this essential local service, note with concern the distance to other A&E services in light of the recent closure of other A&Es in Trafford and London and call on the Secretary of State to reject any such proposals in relation to the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in Wigan in order to retain a good-quality, accessible local service for the people of Wigan.


Lisa Nandy MP



  • vera howarth I'm sorry to have to say this but for such an important issue an e-petition is a bit lame.A campaign against A&E closure needs a far more robust challenge.I am a recently retired staff nurse ,an employee of WWL. and I know how things work. The organisation is run for the good of the highly paid management structure, patients and staff are merely the vehicle for their self gain and aggrandisement. If the A&E is to be closed the decision has already been made ,although they will continue to deny it ,'til days before it closes.

  • Philip Easton There are no plans to close Wigan A & E
